MARRIAGE AT THE MOVIES
KATE AND SEAN HELD THEIR WEDDING CEREMONY AT THE ELECTRIC CINEMA IN BIRMINGHAM
Kate said; 'We are both big film lovers and knew that we wanted our venue to be something a bit different. The minute we stepped into The Electric Cinema we couldn’t see us saying ‘I do’ anywhere else.'
Cinemas are wonderfully atmospheric with faces picked out by the reflected light from the screen during a film and, in this case, from the light of the bulbs in a large white heart. At The Electric Cinema they give you the full movie- going experience with your names top of the bill at the entrance, your own movie poster in the lobby and the opportunity to start the ceremony with your own film.
“We didn’t have a particular theme for our wedding but we enjoyed utilising the large screen at the Electric Cinema and spent a lot of time putting together a black and white film to be played to our guests before the wedding. This was a selection of our favourite movie scenes and set the mood for the ceremony.”
Katie and Sean had chosen some of their favourite romantic film clips and edited them together into a wonderful movie montage, so whilst the bride-to-be was seeing the registrar, their guests were mesmerised by the silver screen.
Kate said: “Our photographer Nick Brightman prides himself on being a relaxed and candid photographer and this was exactly what we wanted. After our first meeting with Nick we were both confident that he would capture our day perfectly. He had the idea to take pictures of us walking through Birmingham City Centre and the pictures were brilliant. We both wanted an ‘urban’ feel to the wedding'.”
